Central Park is an urban park in Manhattan in New York City.
The park was initially opened in 1857, on 778 acres (315 ha) of
city-owned land (it is 843 acres today). In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted
and Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park
with a plan they entitled the Greensward Plan. Construction began the
same year, continued during the American Civil War, and was completed in
1873. See more info to visit wikipedia.
